ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of people were without power Friday afternoon after a tree branch fell on a power pole.

Water Gas and Light workers removed a branch that landed on a utility pole around 3:30 p.m. Firefighters also distinguished a small fire that sparked up.

Roughly 300 customers lost power around Stuart Avenue, including us right here at WALB. We spoke to one man who was working at this house where the branch fell.

All power has been restored to WG&L customers.
